2:00pm
hello, everyone, i'm dana perino, along with kimberly guifoyle, greg gutfelt and bob beckle and this is "the five." the obama care rollout continues to disappoint at every turn. something peggy noonan spoke about yesterday. >> there's nothing to say about obama care except from the moment the site debuted straight through to the point that the american people day by day started learning how obama care was changing their lives and canceling their coverage and changing it, it has just been a
2:01pm
disaster. i've never seen a story quite like this. >> former obama press secretary robert gibbs was asked about the misleading message of you can keep your insurance if you want to and he had to call a spade a spade. >> i don't recall significant discussions around some of the verbiage on this to be 100% honest with you. >> do you agree it was a wrong move? >> certainly. >> one respected d.c. journalist took it a step further, offering a stinging indictment of the obama administration practices that led to this. he wrote, incompetence and deception doomed the launch, as long as the president stick, with the team that failed the country and lied, it is fair to assume that he hasn't learned the most basic lessons from the launch. this weekend, from paint story of "the wall street journal" on saturday and then "washington post" on sunday. it became quite clear, and they didn't even really try to defend it, that politics trumped policy
2:02pm
and truth in the rollout of obama care. >> politics trumped -- >> we think alike. >> absolutely. i spent the whole weekend, "washington post," "forbes," -- >> boring weekend. >> i was consuming everything i could because this was important and the public wants to know ways going on. two things came clear. number one, this was obama's baby. he wanted this website up and running and it was going to be his shining moment, his shining accomplishment. the other thing, that was it, politics overrule practicality because it wasn't ready. as recent as mid-2011, cgi, cgi federal, which is the canadian firm, the american subsidiary of cgi, the canadian group, was hired to come on and get obama care up and running. this was important. i call this a smoking gun, all right, this was in "the washington post" blog about four or five clicks in. it's a letter, an e-mail from
2:03pm
cgi to cms. now, cms is the group that was charged with bringing the obama care website up and running. the group within obama care, the center for medicaid and medicare services. bear with me, one second. look, they told them that there -- this is august 17, six weeks before the launch, there were only 55% ready. they weren't even close for that thing to start. >> how do you find that in all those thingses that are wiped out? >> they just redacted napes. but it's cgi federal. this is going right to -- >> so they knew? but they didn't tell the president or they told him -- >> ard coulding to a lot of the things, president obama knew, his staff knew. it was so important for them to get that thing running, they just leaned on kcgi to get it ot there. >> who is he mad at, himself? ezekiel emmanuel was on fox news
2:04pm
sunday. interesting exchange. take a look. >> we were questioned. are those people going to be able to keep those coverage as the president promised? >> look the law does not say sears dropped coverage. sears decides what's good for sears. doesn't say to the insurance industry, you drop coverage. the industry decides how it's going to make money. when private companies decide to drop people, you blame president obama. he is not responsible for that. >> greg, what did you think? >> that was the best interview that anyone's done. i thought chris nailed it. he has the smug look of someone who just ruined a public bathroom. it's his own path of destruction. seemingly unaffected his life. bureaucratic version of hurricane katrina. obama in a way is a natural disaster. it's an oil spill. it's human beings getting soaked. there's no way to get them clean. >> aw. >> destroy the bathroom. >> that's true.
2:05pm
he destroyed a bathroom that he didn't have to clean. none of these experts are using obama care. so it's -- in effect, it's their public bathroom. >> somebody else will have to clean it up. >> exactly. >> bob, was it taken this weekend that the administration, the white house, did lie to the american? >> i spent every waking hour myself reading about this and absorbing everything i could on it. >> you should. >> i didn't spend a minute on it. no, listen, my assumption is, somebody certainly did, no question about that. i still get back to this point that ezekiel did not quite get it outright. if you had a policy and you demanded that you keep it with the insurance companies, you would have had it. insurance company changed it on you. >> that is what the white house has tried, kimberly, over the last several days, which is try to say, don't blame us, all we're trying to do is provide
2:06pm
insurance for everybody. blame the insurance companies. they're the ones who changed the policy. they changed it because they were asked to and required to under the law. >> they weren't required, that's an important distinction. >> you said they were going to say this exact thing, demonize the insurance companies. the problem for them is the facts smack of something completely different. when you see these redacted copies, when you see reports coming out that they new ahead of time, that's malfeasance on their part and i think it's fraud. when you sit there and tell the american people these rates are going to be lower and those aren't the facts and they knew them ahead of time, they're act like criminals. >> just so we're clear on this, they were not required to change these policies. they were grandfathered it, could have kept them. >> it's disingenuous to use that line because as chris wallace pressed ezekiel emmanuel, he said, no one said that. no one said if a co-pay goes up by five bucks, you would no --
2:07pm
>> -- communication, no question about it. nonetheless -- >> -- isn't it a terrible job of communicating, otherwise known as lying? >> no, the fact of the matter is, if i had an insurance policy and i said to the insurance policy, do not change this, i won't pay an increase, nothing would have changed. >> that's far too innocent when you look at the facts and evidence we have now. they're not innocent. they knew what they were doing and they did it anyway. >> im50 ta'm talking about poli. >> why don't you actually just look at this guy, his administration, this was his baby, this is his legacy. he made promises that he, in fact, knew were false to the american people, and we deserve and expect better. it's as simple as that. >> single payer, wouldn't happen. >> they're not going to blame obama because this is as close as you get to an actual organized religion in which president obama is god and his apologists are doing nothing but speaking in tonguinge,tongues.
2:08pm
this is all they do. you go after doctors who are getting hammered. you go after insurance companies who have extremely slim margins and who are just average americans, working in small towns. you don't see these people work all over the country and they help people. i love my insurance agent. the person that helped me with my house and helped me with my car. they were nice people. they were people. they're not awful people. obama continues to throw so many people under the bus that there's more people under the bus than in it and obama care doesn't cover people hit by the buses. >> they were on the run yesterday. david axelrod appeared with david gregory on "meet the press." >> you were in the white house. you were advising the president. why didn't you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say, no matter what, you're going to keep your health care plan. >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there, is to say it's hindsight, you
2:09pm
shouldn't do that. >> the vast majority of americans, that statement will hold true for this small group of americans, it hasn't. >> without the small group of americans, they're saying, oh, it's just 5% of people. those are actually the paying customers, the insured, the responsible people, and now they're at risk of being uninsured. >> and he's wrong. david axle roll is going to have to come back and eat those words. hopefully david gregory holds him to that. we're hearing more and more. we're talking right now about 14 million people on the individual mandate who may lose coverage. there are numbers coming out now there could be 50 million, 60 million, even higher, 70 million -- >> no. >> bob, i'm not making this stuff up. this is coming out from people who are paid to look into this. that you may have 60 million or 70 million people thrown off their employer coverage because it's too expensive. you're talking about 100 million people. >> one thing we should keep in mind. we keep talking about you can keep your doctor if you want.
2:10pm
your doctor doesn't have to keep you. if they don't like your insurance plan, they can get rid of them. >> the employer says too expensive. we're going to throw you off. we'll take the penalty instead. >> now he's blaming the doctor, the insurance companies. >> that was part of the controversy. i think the white house, political folks, communication folks, have already put a spot on the wall, they continue to rub it. and make it worse. >> what was that? a spot on the wall, they rubbed it? >> yes, you know, if you rub a spot on the wall, you make it worse, that was my point. >> never done that before. >> think progress which if you're not signed up on the liberal blogs you don't get it but if you're on left side it goes around like wildfire. the white house communications office tweeted the real reason the cancer patient writing in today's "wall street journal" lost her insurance. it linked to a blog that basically said this whole thing of blaming the insurance company. her point was that the insurance company -- the insurance she had
2:11pm
was perfect for her. she has stage 4 cancer. it v couldered different doctors at different hospitals and that's how she's been able to stay alive. my point to them is it's never a very good idea to start attacking the victim. even if they think they're actually attacking the insurance company. it looked like they were being insensitive to the cancer patient. >> a strong defense is a good offense and these guys are really offensive. and that's why they see no problem going after her instead of obama. why was this missed? this whole story, which has been out since 2010, why was this entire story except by fnc and conservative blogs? and it's very simple. media bias provides a blinder that obscures the beliefs. it's the morphine that deadens the pain of your own mistakes. so there's no way that the media could see this until now. >> do you see -- seriously, did you see in 2010 -- did anybody in this country -- very few people were aware of this. >> oh, my god.
2:12pm
>> that you couldn't keep your -- >> are you out of your mind? >> bob, where have you been? that was the reason republicans won in 2010. >> i'm talking about the majority of the american people. >> can i just throw this out here? i'm a conspiracy theorist. the reason why obama delayed the employer mandate is they knew it was going to be 70 million people thrown off the rolls and they didn't want it in an election year. >> there's an alien in -- >> that's not even a conspiracy theory. >> what, the alien? >> please, that makes perfect political sense. >> that alien does not have insurance. >> -- our last point about political sense, bob, even you would appreciate this, some of the ads i saw today targeting red state democrats saying, why was it that senator pryor in arkansas defended and repeated the obama care lie? that is very effective tagging. and will help the republicans in 2014. >> it's a strong statement to say the president of the united
2:13pm
states is a liar. i hope you all can feel comfortable saying that. >> i can. he's a liar. >> i wouldn't say that to any president. >> the scandal shows what the media will do to get their guy in. they kept this cat in the bag. now that the cat's out of the bag, it doesn't matter. >> and you wish you would have bought a dog. >> exactly. because dogs are much nicer. >> up next, "the new york times" says president obama simply misspoke on obama care. greg will get "the new york times" straight on that later. tomorrow is election day. it's monday. i've got a case of the mondays. we'll look at key races including new jersey where chris christie is expected to win big. can republicans learn something from the governor's campaign? we'll debate it. so if you have a flat tire, dead battery, need a tow or lock your keys in the car, geico's emergency roadside assistance is there 24/7.
2:14pm
oh dear, i got a flat tire. hmmm. uh... yeah, can you find a take where it's a bit more dramatic on that last line, yeah? yeah i got it right here. someone help me!!! i have a flat tire!!! well it's good... good for me. what do you think? geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.
2:15pm
2:16pm
2:17pm
so, in the suckup olympics, "the new york times" gets the gold for redefining lying as mystiquing.
2:18pm
dismissing president obama's dishonesty as no big deal. he misspoke. try to use that in a marriage. when i said i wouldn't cheat, i was talking about dudes. m misspeaking is when you say. at least "the times" admits obama will not bend to individual need. i quote them, maternity care for those who will not have children is a sore point. it's more than a sore point, you sexist piggings. what if women had to pay for prostate exams or bob's viagrvi? for t"the times," this idiocy i just one price you pay. obama care is the hammer in this hammer and sickle. as bill maher notes, if it's for the greater good, who cares if the president lies. any student of history knows where this leads. it's cuba bad, east germany bad.
2:19pm
for progressives, that's progress. our bad is their good. where success is measured by government's grip on freedom. do you know what t"the times" picked? broccoli. that's a big health scoop. which leads me to ask, does obama care cover getting your head out of your ass? >> not sure about that, but broccoli is delicious. >> -- cover viagra, does anybody know, because it's expensive. >> "the new york times" and their special health supplement puts broccoli on the cover. >> it's the worst vegetable. >> no, it's the best. >> i know it's good for you but it's the worst possible. >> cover it in cheese. everything in cheese is better. including cheese. >> whoever likes broccoli has got to be out of their mind. it tastes like turf from a football stadium. it's just horrible. >> is that worse than cbs news reporting when six people signed up for obama care the first day they called it off to a slow
2:20pm
start? >> that's just so crazy. they don't care. you don't understand, they have a loose relationship with the truth and they like it like that. they're like, we're keeping it. if we say it, it's true. they don't care what the realality or the facts are. why are more people not upset about this? >> socialized medicine -- >> that's fine, whatever you want to call it. the expectations of obama care are so low now with everybody beating up on it so badly, i will guarantee you by this time in the spring, it will not nearly be as negative as people think it is because, a, not that many people will be affected by it and secondly these stories are going to run out. >> there's no more bottom to it. >> trust me, there's a bottom. >> that's like saying a year after hurricane sandy, we won't be talking about hurricane sandy as much. >> yes, that's correct. >> you made a statement, you said not that many people will
2:21pm
be affected by it. what do do you mean by that. >> when they find out -- you say 60 million. i don't buy into that number. a much more smaller number of people will lose their policies. the people whoicies will get be policies. >> who's paying for it? >> you, me. if it were up to me, it would be paid by all of us together collectively as a family. >> the fact "the new york times" editorial which is infewerating every single day of the week but in particular on sundays. that became a story itself yesterday. talking about it all day long. the public editor of "the new york times" having to actually ask for an explanation from rosenthal, which he got, sort of half-baked. the media seems to not be willing to accept this lie. when the white house blamed the video for benghazi, we were like the broken records. we were the only ones talking about that. this one, not so much. >> suppose if we got to the -- if we had called him out first,
2:22pm
would the media follow it along? it had to be the other guys who got there first for it to be okay. it makes you wonder what does president have to do to be accurately criticized by "the new york times"? does he have to kidnap a bus load of orphans? >> oh, my god. >> what does he have to do? >> why the children? >> because they deserve it. >> you don't understand, this is the guy who puts out the most predator drone strikes, yet he's the nobel peace prize winner. hello, they don't care. they're not going to criticize the guy. >> -- a few terrorists -- >> you're missing the point, bob, he's not the king of peace in reality but no one cares about what the truth is. they disregard it in its entirety. whether it's benghazi. whether it's obama care. >> how do you know his aides didn't tell him about the grandfather clause and that's what he was using? >> right, that's a good one. >> i do want to say that obama care's the one thing that's been able to unite the left and the right.
2:23pm
there's actually bipartisan opposition to the current affairs. where greg groes from here i don't know. >> know what has grandfather claws? a really old cat. >> i metaphor is what i -- >> yeah, i got you. >> i have to show you this great picture. where was this, tennessee? did you see this? >> this is genius, by the way. >> brian kelsey. is he a state senator. handed kathleen sebelius "website for dummies." >> someone who is so -- like, greg, if it were you or me or anywhere at this table and someone tried to hand us that, we would look at them and go, are you out of your mind, i'm not taking that. she takes it and pictures are snapped with her holding "websites for dumb ydummies." they really need to get rigd he,
2:24pm
clean house. cgi, wow, are they lost, completely in the weeds. november, good luck, there's no chance -- >> i had a dream about sebelius -- >> you have weird dream also. >> she was in a floral pantsuit and i thought she was the queen of england. >> okay, on that note -- >> trying to get a job with hillary clinton 2016. >> please, move on. >> coming up, some important races on this election day eve, including here in new york city where bill demazo -- >> oh, gosh. >> it's true. he's up 40% over the republican. the republican is that guy on right, joe. >> lhota. >> thank you. that's the problem. what does president obama -- no, the problem is i don't know his name. what is obama doing campaigning with him? what, you're surprised? don't forget to check out our new website.

2:28pm
2:29pm
welcome back, everybody. first tuesdays in november typically reserved for elections. three off-year elections tomorrow are sure to give some insight into where the country's headed politically. in new jersey, christie's trying to prove he has the chops with a likely landslide win for the republican in a very blue state. should the gop take another look at chris christie? he's been under fire from the far right, dana, your thoughts. >> i think they'll have to look at him. new jersey, it's pretty remarkable. when you saw him get elected in 2010 which was a big republican
2:30pm
wave during the midterps. everyone thought that was a fluke actually. he's set to win tomorrow night by possibly up to 40 points. it's a remarkable re-election effort in new jersey. does that translate in arizona, south carolina, alabama? i don't know. >> what are your thoughts, quick? >> i don't think it translates state to state like that. i think this is a unique situation with christie. it will be interesting to see where the polls come out. >> quick thought, does a 40-point win in a blue state -- >> you can't separate new jersey without talking virginia. this is the first type republicans have gotten more than 50% of the vote since ' 8. >> for christie's future, political purity is is great for your ego but not great for elections. i think he has a great personality. up against hillary, she has the warmth of a tin toilet seat. the more people that see christie will like him. the more people that know hillary will dislike her. >> toic two of the new york city
2:31pm
mayoral race where stuff's getting weirder. ultraprogresser bill de blasio has opened a lead over joe lhota. is new york so devoid of political options? >> this is amazing. but only in new york can a guy that, you know, hung out with sandra nistas, honeymooned in cuba. new york city has witnessed a massive drop in murders. saving minority lives. it's an incredible story. this guy does not like the new york pd. he could turn back the clock essentially electing de blasio is like after getting cured of lung cancer taking up smoking. this is a bad thing for new york city. >> can i hold up "the post" cover? he's been known to hang with sandra nistas. and he honoree mooned in cuba. >> i don't want to criticize
2:32pm
anyone's honeymoons, but this is obvious to me what this guy's policies are and his politics so you know what, new york, you're about to get a reckoning. >> you had five honeymoons so you probably know something about it. >> if we could have the off-leash dog park rules extended to 10:00 a.m. >> if greg had run for mayor, with $10 million, i could have gotten him 45%. >> flat out worst mistake i ever made was not run. >> like mondale -- >> will tell you, ray kelly. where were you, ray? >> topic three, in a race that has tightened considerably in the final hours before voting begins, democratic terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by a slim margin. is the obama care debacle the reason this race has tightened? >> no, this is an example where the tea party is killing the republican party.
2:33pm
mcauliffe is a good friend of mine, i can't believe he's going to be governor. the tea party nominated this right wing guy who doesn't stand a chance. it's not clear. >> another tea party victim. >> he does stand a chance. he's down six points. the problem really is the libertarian candidate who has ten points which he's taking from the republicans. the option -- the problem with the republicans is they can't get all these people together. they're not lock step like the left. it would be great for the libertarian candidate. >> will be a lot bigger -- >> there was reporting today that said women are going to make the difference in virginia. that's true everywhere. since you gave women the vote, that's going to happen in all these states. >> what a mistake. >> northern virginia has changed a lot demographically. the federal government shutdown really pissed them off. i just said that? >> watch your language. >> obama care has enraged everybody so it might a tighter race than people thought. >> a republican candidate for governor down there that has been so bad with women.
2:34pm
and also the hispanic population. >> let's not forget terry mcauliffe -- accusations or confirmed there was money laundering that had been going on in his past? >> lots of accusations. >> a guy like this, how is he leading in virginia for governor? >> that's the problem. they need to capitalize on obama care, et cetera. this shouldn't be i think even six percentage points. a good opportunity for cuccinelli to get ahead. nevertheless, i think given the polling, given 3% to 4% margin of error depending and turnout, you never know. it's not a watch. it's not a wash. it's not like new york. >> not maybe, yes, absolutely. >> any other thoughts? new jersey? can we throw this out here? everyone's saying the reason why clinton didn't go to new jersey for christie's opponent is it was a sure look they didn't want to waste their type, but they're
2:35pm
spending time with terry mcauliffe. >> remember terry mcauliffe's relationship with the clintons was of a best friendship. terry mcauliffe is the best bser you'll ever meet in your life. extremely loyal to the clintons. barbara bono's never been on my radar. >> dana, you said pissed off and bs. >> i'm having a really bad monday. >> you're really starting to get me upset, being at this table with you. >> you've turned into a salty sailor. >> i'll go to my room. >> where's your mom? get that soap out. >> we're going to go. coming up, this week, the supreme court will hear an important case on public prayer. kimberly will explain. that's next. before we go, check our facebook page. how mu protein

2:40pm
on wednesday, the supreme court is set to hear a landmark case that could influence the role of religious prayer in public forerupps. it started in new york where two residents sued, claiming the opening prayer at the town's legislative session, had christian references to jesus. the holy spirit and godfather which they say violated their first amendment rights. the obama administration has joined conservative lawmakers in urging the high court to allow politician, s to say prayers during public meetings. this is legally fascinating. >> i think the administration has been consistent on questions
2:41pm
of prayer and, remember, they wanted to take "under god" out of the pledge and the administration was strong on that. however, i think it is certainly inconsistent with the clash between religious conscious and contraception. when it comes to sex, if sex is is involved, the administration says, okay, this is where they want to assert the first amendment right. when it has to do with town hall meetings, it's just not a political fight they want to take. when it comes to reproductive rights, then they get involved. >> what do you make of this, now that there's some solidarity on this? political, right, constituencies that will support establishment of religion. >> we'll go back to the law. the lemon test. >> 1971. >> three purposes. if it meets it, you're allowed to do that. does it have a secular purpose? must neither advance, nor inhibit religion, check. must not result in the excessive
2:42pm
entanglement between the government and religion. it meets all the criteria, they should be able to do it. >> there's a weird legal dichotomy in allowing it prior to a meeting but not during it. that's interesting how they're going to reconcile it. >> i'm sorry, does not entanglement, the third of the three? >> yes and no. if you're saying it's secular in purpose, how is it not secular in purpose during versus before? it's a little bit where they're drawing a line legally. fine, that's their job to try to figure it out and space it out like that. >> let's keep in mind that the first amendment they fall back on here for their argument, the people that wrote the first amendment were in the first congress who opened their congress with a prayer. so i think frankly it's a little bit of a reach. this has been going on since the beginning of the republican. i expect it will be forever. >> greg. >> yes, you know, i'm of the kind -- i'm always pretty
2:43pm
polite. like when people are praying. like when you go over to somebody's house and you're into that sort of thing but you don't say, i'm not going to pray. you just do it. it's not like you're giving in, you're just getting along. i wish i had all this free time to do all these lawsuits. >> that's what they should do with prayer in school. you don't have to participate. if you take a minute of silent prayer and you can pray or you can look at the girl in front of you. or you can do what are you want. but you should be able to have a minute set aside to say a prayer if you want to to begin your school day. >> we should say a prayer before this show. it might help. >> we could pray for good ratings. kidding. >> you're an awful person. >> no, you're supposed to pray for guidance and wisdom. >> i think the good news is it's both sides of the pew, which was the tease that they took out, both sides of the pew seem to be okay. does anyone really have a

an update on a story we covered on friday. the miami dolphins suspended incognito for, quote, conduct
2:49pm
detrimental to the team. he was reportedly linked to the harassment of teammate jonathan martin. martin left the team after allegedly his teammates bullied him. new reports say racially charged messages may have been part of the problem. it's amazing how the dolphins as an organization have changed their tune. at first it was no big deal. now all of a sudden it's a big deal. eric, why? >> because jonathan martin's parents are both lawyers, number one. i'm sure there's a lawsuit on its way. the point here is there was more than just the team getting up when jonathan martin sat down at the cafeteria table. the team got up and moved. the point is, he's been harassed for a year and a half. for 23 or 24 games which encompasses almost two seasons, he's been harassed. >> why has he been harassed? >> some of these messages they've got of incognito, they're disgusting. i mean, they're awful. god awful and gross. look, i come from locker rooms. it's a tough place in the locker
2:50pm
room. you got to man up. but at some point, these are professionals. kids look up to you. when this companies out, kids are going to look at the miami dolphins and go, i'm not sure i like the dolphins. >> he's not a small dude either. just stand up for yourself. i know you've been running this story the whole weekend. >> initially, when we talked about this on friday, eric and i were the management initially c out and says it's not a big deal. i don't understand how they could possibly have to backtrack on that. it could not be worse coming from the miami dolphins. not because of their sports. i don't care about that in terms of their performance. they're trying to build a new stadium in miami. they need everybody in the city pulling for them. this is exactly the way to lose that stadium bid. >> when you were in the locker room, did you find this kind of harassment? >> i was asked to leave. >> that was the girls locker room. >> the other element to this is
2:51pm
that veteran players or rook-- d force rookies to pay for player meals. >> not in locker rooms. >> what do you think about this from a legal standpoint? >> legally, emotionally, psychologically, i think bullying should never be tolerat tolerated. i think it sets a bad example. if this was happening to him, i think it's important to let the management know, contemporaneously with the event so it can be documented. that may not be a popular thing to say. >> if incognito -- >> i don't think racism is okay. that's the problem. >> if he left messages on the machine which apparently said that -- apparently martin is mixed race and he makes racial comments. this is what's alleged. is this a hate crime brewing here?
2:52pm
>> if his parents and family are motivated here, they could try to bring a case. but i don't think they're going to succeed and i don't think it's going to be good for his nfl career. >> the locker room -- that's what that is from the very beginning before the game, after the game. there are practical jokes, pranks going on. they'll tie your socks together, all that stuff. this is disgusting, it went on and on. to your point, bob, i was getting destroyed, made fun of. i'll never forget one day. i'm like, i'm not taking this anymore. and i went after a guy. i threw him out of the pit. punched him. cost me $5,000 for punching a guy on the trading floor. >> you were fined -- >> but it stopped. >> fined $5,000 -- >> when i was a freshman, they put icy hot in my jock strap. >> you actually loved it, bob? >> that explains that.
2:53pm
it really does, actually. >> i have one bit of advice. the white house should not get involved in this. whatever it is that the president's asked about this week, do not get involved. stand down. >> your image up until recently has been a straightforward, nice woman -- peace of mind is important when you're running a successful business. so we provide it services you can rely on. with centurylink as your trusted it partner, you'll experience reliable uptime for the network and services you depend on. multi-layered security solutions keep your information safe, and secure. and responsive dedicated support meets your needs, and eases your mind. centurylink. your link to what's next.

>> i love this. i think some women are way too jealo jealous. >> five years ago today, one of the great days in american history, barack obama was elected the 44th president of the united states. here's a clip of his victory speech. >> this is our moment. this is our time, to reclaim the american dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth that out of many we are one, that while we breathe, we hope. and where we are met with cynicism and doubt and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people, yes, we can. >> yes, we can, mr. president. go ahead. >> who's running this thing? eric, you're next. >> very quickly. you will not believe what you hear. >> somebody must be doing something exactly right. but who would be complaining? somebody whose privacy was violated.
2:59pm
you can't have your privacy violated if you don't know your privacy is violated. >> did you really say you can't have your privacy violated if you don't know your privacy is being violated? >> that is so lame. >> might have misspoke. >> please correct the record, sir. >> this is a new segment i like to call "i hate these people." this is in "the new york times." an anonymous person wrote this letter to the etiquette column of "the new york times." i've done a lot of things to the outside of my home to make a burglar look elsewhere for a likely target. i just realized this means i'm hoping my efforts will make him choose another house in the neighborhood instead of mine. i'm beginning to wonder if this is ethical. oh, my god, you make me sick. i hate these people! >> i agree. >> i'm going to do mine. i learned this weekend that someone that i really admired passed away. he worked at the 91 club, a new york fixture. his name is lorenzo robinson.

he was a reverend and he worked in the men's restroom. he would greet people and talk to them. he met ronald reagan. reagan gave them his cufflinks and he wore them every day. some key lawmakers say the obama care website may work just fine -- for identity thieves. this is "special report." good evening. i'm bret baier. you can add privacy concerns to the growing list of complaints about the president's disastrous health care overhaul rollout. it seems those potential obama care customers who are able to penetrate the website's unintentional front-end security gauntlet may be delivering their most private information on a silver platter to the bad guys. we have fox team coverage. brit hume looks at
